Collagraphs are an accessible, very affordable and safe printmaking technique that can produce some very unusual and exciting results. The printing plates are made with non specialist materials using textures to create a unique plate that holds the ink. Collagraphs are printed using an etching press.
This course is a perfect introduction to this intaglio technique, and will provide you with the knowledge and confidence to develop, experiment and produce your own plates.
Perfect for newcomers or returners and certainly for those with previous Collagraph printmaking experience.
